There's going to be a wait, but who cares when the foods SO good? Just bring a roadie and enjoy sipping on the curb. Exchange a few pleasantries with the Detroit-ees to your left & Ann Arbor-ites to your right.

You should get the BBQ because life is short, but if you're in a healthy mood, the spinach salad is also really delicious and quite filling!

I'm a big fan of Slows. Parking can be a pain, as can the wait (seems like the whole city is here sometimes), but it really is a top notch BBQ joint. Every dish and every side gets full marks from me. An essential stop on your next trip to Detroit.

Amazing BBQ, awesome atmosphere, one of the best restaurants in Detroit. I'm from Toledo and I frequently make the drive up JUST to get this BBQ. Be sure to try all the sauces!

Best barbecue I've had - insanely good ribs, mustard beans and brisket so tender you might not survive it. A must visit while in Detroit!
